When folks tour our pastures, they point out Countess, noting her femininity and cherry red colour. Her mother, Claudia, is of one of our premier cows here at Dora Lee. Countess’s full sister, Cassandra, was the high selling Fleckvieh Forum heifer at last years sale going to Les Enterprises Hemi Inc in Quebec. Like her sale mate, Countess also has time proven, elite sires from the past in her make up – sires like King Arthur, Sim-Rock C&B Western, Hercules & Monet on the dam side and of course our outcross Equinox on the top side. DLD Celine, a maternal sister to Countess is certainly making her mark at Double Bar D in Saskatchewan with an awesome return on investment.
We feel Countess has it all – femininity, performance, style, colour and a stacked pedigree, backed by 39 years of breeding Fleckvieh Simmental here at Dora Lee. Fullblood Fleckvieh genetics at it’s best.
Bred AI April 20 to IPU Revelation – no exposure
Sold to Lee McBride, Port Hope ON – Thank you Lee!
DORA LEE’S STARR FF27Y
DORA LEE’S STARR FF27Y – POLLED – BRED HEIFER – August 8 photo

We imported Starr’s grand dam from the U.S. back in 1998 and she worked here for 12 years. Unfortunately we lost her to milk fever 2 days after Starr’s dam Stella was born. Despite being orphaned at 2 days, Stella has turned out to be, we believe an impressive individual and proof of this shows in her daughter Starr.
Starr has a star studded pedigree with many time proven bulls from the past in her make up. Outcross sires like Iglhoff, Siegfried, Arnold’s Image are all right there. Starr’s genomic profile is also very impressive placing her in the top 20% of our breed for feed efficiency and top 5% for rib eye. “WOW”! She is bred to the IPU Revelation bull, we believe to be a calving ease bull and being a direct son of our legendary Francesca cow is a real plus for us. Starr, we believe should have a long and productive life as she heads out to make her own mark following in her mother and grandmother’s foot steps. Fullblood Fleckvieh genetics at it’s best.
